Today Is Awful, But Let's Have a Gif Party Anyways

Today is April Fool’s Day, a planet-wide, 24-hour-long celebration of deceit and buffoonery that all good folk abhor. All those who value their time and dignity should, of course, abandon the internet entirely. But for those poor souls who do not have that luxury, we offer you a refuge: the Gif Party.


You may not feel like partying. However, you can at least take a few moments to rest and recover, to steady your nerves with a few good gifs before you are forced to venture onward. Stay strong, my friends, and gif heartily—and we may just make it through this day yet.

Rob Bricken was the Editor of io9 from 2016-18, the creator of the poorly named but fan-favorite news site Topless Robot, and now writes nerd stuff for many places, because it's all he's good at.

I’m going to a Star Trek concert thing!!! I’m hoping that’s not an April Fool’s joke on my expense because I was billed already a long time ago.
